- Fact.MR's latest survey on crop protection chemicals market provides in-depth analysis on the current trends and opportunities affecting growth through 2031. It discloses hidden prospects for expansion across various segment in terms of crops, product, source, form, and mode of application. The report also profiles the leading companies involved in crop protection chemicals market and presents a detailed assessment of their key strategies.

NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The global crop protection chemicals market is expected to surpass US$ 122 Bn by 2031, as per Fact.MR. Rising emphasis on increasing the crop output to counter food security is estimated to propel the demand for crop protection chemicals.


On account of this, sales of crop protection chemicals are projected to grow by 5.3% CAGR over the forecast period 2021-2031 in comparison to 4.3% CAGR registered between 2016 and 2020.

Plant pests, weed, and diseases have become more common due to the change in environmental circumstances. Hence, modern farmers are extensively adopting crop protection chemicals such as herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides to increase agricultural yield by safeguarding crops against pests and weeds.

Driven by this, demand for crop protection chemicals is anticipated to increase by 1.6x over the coming decade.

Also, growing investments and the introduction of subsidies by the government to increase the overall agricultural output will boost the market. These subsidies are intended to facilitate agricultural production and address surging demand for food in Brazil, India, the U.S., and China. 

In terms of source, bio-based crop protection chemicals are expected to register the fastest growth. Expansion of this category is attributed to the increasing commercialization of bio-based chemicals derived from plants, bacteria, minerals and animal sources and increasing awareness regarding the ill effects of using synthetic chemicals on arable land.

"The market is expected to gain traction from the increasing adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) solutions. Incorporation of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) to optimize the farming techniques and monitor the growth of pest, weeds and plant diseases is expected to propel the growth of the market," says a Fact.MR analyst.

Key Takeaways from the Crop Protection Chemicals Market Study

  • Driven by the increasing adoption of bio-based crop protection chemicals across the U.S., the North America market is likely to account for more than one-fifth of global sales in 2021.
  • The Latin America market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 4.7% through 2031, owing to the increasing import of crop protection chemicals in Brazil and Argentina.
  • India and China are projected to collectively account for the largest revenue share in Asia Pacific, favored by the increasing government investment in the agriculture sector.
  • Bio-based crop protection chemicals are expected to emerge as one of the most remunerative source segments, contributing nearly 423 BPS by 2031.
  • Based on products, herbicides are estimated to dominate the segment, accounting for more than 40% of the total demand in 2021.

Key Drivers

  • Rising inclination towards the use of eco-friendly crop protection products and increasing focus on sustainable agricultural production are spurring the sales of bio-based crop protection chemicals.
  • Superior efficiency of herbicides over manual weeding procedures and scarcity of manpower for mechanical weeding across the U.S. and countries in the European Union will propel the demand for herbicides, fueling growth

Key Restraints

  • Adverse effects of pesticides on human health due to their persistent nature, lipophilicity, bioaccumulation, and toxic properties are hampering the growth of the market.
  • Decline in effectiveness of crop protection chemicals owing to the increased resistance of pests and evolving metabolism patterns in insects is expected to hinder sales.

Explore Fact.MR's Coverage on the Chemical & Materials Domain –

Pre-emergent Herbicide Market- Pre-emergent herbicides are widely utilized in agricultural lands, lawns, and other locations where weed development is a major concern. The grass keeper, nurseryman, or farmer selects and applies pre-emergent herbicides strategically to successfully control weed development over the long and short term, depending on the herbicide selected. In industrialized locations such as Europe and North America, pre-emergent herbicides are mostly used. During the historical period, the market has gained traction in various regions.

Aerosol Insecticides Market- Insecticides are frequently used in agricultural fields, urban green spaces, and public health initiatives to protect humans and plants from numerous diseases. Aerosol insecticides, or insecticides packaged in aerosol form, are praised for producing less waste than other types of insecticides since they are designed to deliver only a specified amount of poison during each spray. As a result of this, the global market for aerosol insecticides continues to play a significant role in the insecticides sector.

Bio rational Fungicides Market- Bio rational fungicides are fungicides that have no or minimal negative effects on the human body or the environment. They are suitable for use in organic greenhouses and indoor agricultural facilities due to their low toxicity. The industry is expected to benefit from the growing trend of using organic fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides instead of chemicals. Growing global knowledge of the benefits of using organic farm products is driving demand for organic agricultural ingredients, which will eventually increase demand for organic pesticides, particularly bio rational fungicides.
